The Indian subcontinent has a history of worst earthquakes in the world. Pakistan, India, Nepal and Afghanistan are the major victims of the earthquake that frequently occur in this region. The reason of occurrence of earthquakes in this region is that Indian plates are frequently moving towards Asia at 49mm per year.
As Pakistan is situated at the north-western side of the Indian sub-continent. Moreover, it overlaps the both Eurasian and Indian tectonic plates, and for the same reason, it frequently plunges into the earthquakes that frequently occur in the Northern Areas and some parts of the Baluchistan. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan are located at the Iranian Plateau while Punjab and Singh fall in the region of Indian plates. For the same reasons, it has a history of worst earthquakes. The Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Northern Areas are located in the Central Asia and along the edge of the Indian plot, so these areas always witnessed the worst earthquakes. These are the places where two tectonic plates collide.
